Synopsis for "The Graveyard Shift Part Two: Trust Issues"
At May and Jay's apartment, Peter and Anna Maria are having dinner with Jay and Aunt May. May quickly changes the subject and suggests to Peter that he proposes to Anna. Peter nervously drinks water and tries to think of a way to explain his aunt that they are just friends, but Anna simply says that they broke up some time ago and she hasn't been able to find an apartment, to May's annoyance.
As Peter and Anna then go to Parker Industries, she tells him that he is used to his life being complicated that he over complicates things all the time. She suggests that he swings them back to Parker Industries. He protests, but she tells him that people will just assume that Spider-Man is saving her again. He eventually agrees and suggests that they stop some blocks away from Parker Industries as Spider-Man and Parker are no longer supposed to be associates but Anna tells him that no one bought that.
At the Parker Industries Beta Testing Lab, Sajani complains that they are spending time and resources in a super villain prison, pointing out that they always break out and they will be a joke after the first escape. Clayton Cole defends the idea, saying that the point is about reforming the criminals and that Peter hired him because he believes he can do better than his life as Clash and many villains just need a chance like him.
A security guard interrupts them, telling Sajani that the security system has been glitching on and off. She is surprised since she had the system upgraded after the Black Cat broke in. Peter and Anna then arrive and Sajani is more then surprised, since she was supposed to get a text from Peter when he arrived to discuss the budget together. Anna tells her that Peter has a secret door in his lab, which he uses to meet Spider-Man; much to Peter's and Sajani's annoyance.
Anna tells him she doesn't like secrets and that that's why they split up. In the Security Hub, the Ghost has deactivated the phones and internet and sealed all the exits. He considers every employee, from the C.E.O. to the security guard, guilty. The guard then appears to investigate the glitch, and the Ghost tells him that he is setting the world free, starting with him before phasing his arm through the guard's chest.
Back in the Testing Lab, Peter starts testing the security measures for the new prison, including security orbs, S.W.A.T.-bots and hard-light walls. The Ghost then turns the security measures against the employees. Peter tries to override them, but the Ghost appears in a screen and tells him that nothing will work. He admits he is impressed by their work and will have them hold in Parker Industries as he brings it down.
A employee tries to escape and Peter saves him from a bot, which start taking each out. Anna tells them that she is broadcasting a frequency that messes their guidance system, also giving a cover for Peter to use his powers. He then tells the Living Brain to protect the staff and take them to an exit, which he does and starts getting damage. Anna worries and tells Sajani that their secret nano tech project is backed in his memory only since they don't want Peter to find out. The Living Brain makes a way to the secret door in Peter's lab, which Anna tells the staff Spider-Man uses to get his tech to establish a good reason for him to be there. The staff enters while Peter stays to seal the lab and Anna notices Sajani isn't with them.
Meanwhile, the Ghost is seeing the staff leaving the lab and decides to continue elsewhere and is approached by Sajani. She recognizes that somebody paid him and offers to show him the best way to destroy the prison project beyond repair if he lets the other projects alone and doesn't hurt any one.
The Ghost admits she is a good negotiator and that she will get far in the business world, but he can't have that since he doesn't sabotage corporations for the money, he hates them and wants them dead. Peter changes to Spider-Man and hears a scream, he gets to the Ghost just as he phases his arm through Sajani's chest.

Synopsis for "Repossession Part 2 of 3: No Take Backsies"
Two years ago, Felicia Hardy presents a painting in an elite party. In the present day at a museum, Regina Venderkamp, the woman who bought all the items confiscated from the Black Cat in an auction, presents the same painting that Felicia did.
However, the lights go out for a moment and the painting is gone. An enraged Regina and her bodyguards go to her apartment only to find all of her treasures gone. She goes upstairs to see if she also took everything there, despite a bodyguard protesting since the Black Cat could still be there.
Felicia then appears and says she couldn't leave without Regina learning that no one takes from the Black Cat without paying. Regina orders her bodyguards to attack, but Felicia quickly takes the out. She reflects that her bad luck powers seem to work better when she is ruthless and she may have been holding back before. She throws one of her claws to Regina's neck, causing her to pass out.
Hour later, Regina wakes up handcuffed to a chair at the Black Cat's hideout. Felicia contemplates almost all of the items that were confiscated and those she retrieved, with only one missing. In Jay's and May's apartment, they contemplate the last item, the only thing they got at the auction, and go watch TV unaware that the Black Cat plans to steal it back.
